SINGAPORE -- Amazon will not enter any cost competition in Asia's growing cloud computing market, an executive at a subsidiary of the U.S. tech giant told Nikkei Asia, in contrast to rising competitors like China's Huawei Technologies trying to capture demand from regional governments rushing to digitize their economies. 

"When customers don't understand the advances that you get through a mature cloud offering and they want to compare you based on the lowest common denominator, it's not a place where we want to be," said Peter Moore, managing director for public sector in the Asia-Pacific region and Japan at Amazon Web Services (AWS).
